There are Many Ways to Support the Club

The RMHUC is run by volunteers.  How about pitching in to do just one thing?

Here are some ideas:

At Events

  • Greet and check in guests - a great way to meet everyone who attends!
  • Help the organizers by shopping for or providing refreshments.  (This does not have to be a financial commitment; just a trip to the store and delivery to the event.)
  • Help with set-up and/or clean-up.
  • Take photographs or write up a brief review of an event for our Web site.
  • Host one of our annual events such as the Summer Barbecue or the Winter Holiday Party (~50-100 people).
  • Host a smaller event such as a speaker or panel discussion (~15-50 people).

Help Create or Organize an Event

  • Organize a “Cheap Eats” group meal: Find a resonably-priced, interesting restaurant, ask them to suggest a day/time when business is otherwise slow (e.g. 3PM Sunday), and tell them you’d like to invite members of the local Harvard community and their families to gather for a meal.  Tell us your plan, and we'll handle the publicity!
  • Organize a hike or a ski day.  
  • Connected with a performing arts / museum / gallery / cultural institution in Colorado?  Or would you like an excuse to be?  Keep an eye out for Harvard-related or interesting stuff not generally available to the public around which a Club event could be organized.
  • Introduce the Club to a local non-profit organization to discuss a community service event.
  • Help us identify potential speakers with Harvard connections.
  • Recommend a Harvard faculty member for a visit to the Club.
  • Work in a cool lab or other interesting environment?  Host a tour!
  • Alert us to good venues for a variety of events.

Support the Club's Communications & Membership

  • Reach out on behalf of the Club to new arrivals to Colorado to invite them to join the Club.
  • Contact new members to help them learn more about the Club.
  • Make phone calls prior to an event to generate interest and attendance.
  • Join the RMHUC Membership Committee.

Help with Harvard College Applicant Interviews

  • Interviewers are particularly needed to interview outside the Denver / Boulder area.
  • Help with major interview events in January and February.
